Chin implant, as performed at the Facial Plastic Surgery Group of NYC by our double Ivy League trained facial plastic surgeon, can improve the facial profile by strengthening the appearance of a weak chin and improving facial symmetry. The facial plastic surgeon may suggest using a chin implant to create a more defined jawline and stronger chin to lengthen the face. The chin implant can also be performed at the same time as nose surgery (rhinoplasty) to help balance the ratio of facial proportions.
Symmetry and accurately proportioned facial features are often considered the most important components of facial beauty. The Facial Plastic Surgery Group of NYC specializes in facial plastic surgery and chin implants are one of our most popular procedures. A wide range of chin implant shapes and sizes are available to suit your particular needs. A chin implant is commonly performed in conjunction with nose surgery to achieve maximum aesthetic results.
What is a chin implant procedure? The chin implant procedure only takes about one hour and can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation. The surgeon will make an incision inside of the mouth or underneath the chin to eliminate visible scarring. The chin implant is positioned in front of the jawbone to elongate the face, achieving facial symmetry.
What is the recovery like? Patients will have slight tightness and swelling in the chin after the chin implant surgery. Most patients experience very little pain with this procedure however, any discomfort can be relieved with pain medication. A compression garment worn to reduce swelling during the healing process. Patients are instructed by our facial plastic surgeon to stick to a soft diet for several days until healed.
Patients can return to their normal routine within one week and gym in less than one month.
